An Open Letter to Barack Obama

A friend just emailed this to me. What shocked me speechless was that Snopes not only posted it but confirmed it. Lou Pritchett is the former VP of Procter & Gamble; when contacted by Snopes, he verified that he did, indeed, write this letter and sent it to the New York Times. But true to liberal form the fishwrap of record refused to so much as acknowledge the letter, much less print it. I hadn’t seen it until now, but it echoes everything I think and feel about Barack Obama:

Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.

You scare me becuase you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

You scare me because you have never had military experience and thus don’t understand it at its core.

You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others.

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America’ crowd and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America into a European-style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government-controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

You scare me because you have begun to use extortion tactics against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

You scare me because you falsely believe you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass for everything that you do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O’Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Lou Pritchett

I am not nearly as afraid for my Second Amendment rights now as I am for my freedom, period. My freedom to speak, to believe as I will, to express myself, to keep what I’ve worked hard to earn–I fear we may lose these freedoms under Obama. And if we give it up in the name of hope and change, we’ll never get it back.
